Opening Time

Having had our doors shut to clients for weeks due to the global Coronavirus pandemic Charterhouse in Sherborne are looking to re-open the doors of our salerooms in Sherborne from 15th June.

“The word of the moment is unprecedented and these are certainly unprecedented times” Commented Richard Bromell.

During the lockdown auctioneers have not been able to hold open public auctions. Instead, with the internet, Charterhouse have continued to hold live auctions od classic & vintage cars, motorcycles and country house antiques & collectibles with internet and telephone bidding behind closed doors.

Despite these unprecedented times, the Charterhouse online only auction of classic motorcycles was our best ever such specialist auction which totalled over £250,000. Showing high demand and an appetite for buying items based upon the auctioneers professional descriptions and multiple images online collectors continue to collect.

Moving forward, Charterhouse will be opening the door to their Long Street auction complex with Covid-19 safety procedures in place, keeping their staff and client safe.

For clients looking to have items valued at the salerooms they will need to telephone 01935 812277 for an appointment. Upon arrival washing/sanitiser will be available which will also be used when leaving.

For home appointments including probate, insurance valuations and house clearance, staff will be fully equipped with PPE and adhere to social distancing.

Charterhouse are now accepting entries for their July auction of clocks, coins, medals, stamps and collectors’ items on 2nd & 3rd with classic and vintage cars on the 29th July.

For further information regarding these auction, and to enter items into the busy Charterhouse program of auctions with collector’s items followed by classic cars in July, silver, jewellery and watches in August, contact Richard Bromell at Charterhouse, The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne 01935 812277 or email images to Richard on
